Board of Directors (Appointments and Changes)
Announcement by the VA TECH Board (E)

---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Klaus Sernetz, Chairman of the Board of the listed VA TECH and Gerhard Falch, Deputy Chairman, held a meeting yesterday with Siemens Munich to clarify the intentions of the Siemens Group. Additionally, VA TECH once again emphasized very clearly that it would reject a possible hostile takeover of the VA TECH. Siemens Germany confirmed the content of the press releases issued at the same time by Siemens Austria. However, it was clearly stated that the Siemens bodies (Central Board and Supervisory Board) have not yet addressed the issue.   Whether or not there will be a takeover bid at all, and if yes, what form it would take, has not been decided by Siemens yet in any way. Contrary to other announcements made, all big banks have pledged support for the concept presented by the VA TECH Board with respect to restructuring and capital increase, and will continue to do so. The Extraordinary General Assembly scheduled for 21 September 2004 will be held as planned.
